Betway betting program

Wettangebot As part of our betting program check, we looked at sports, competitions and types of bets. The respective scope was decisive for our assessment.

The provider Betway has put together an attractive betting program for its customers that includes around 25 sports in Kenya. For orientation: Bet365 is great and includes over 30 sports, followed by 25 - 30 Unibet, bwin and Bet-at-home.

For At the very front it is not enough for Betway, but the British depend on the majority of the competition and can still convince with their betting program. Each sport includes a series of competitions and events.

The number of bet types also speaks in favor of Betway. Where - as is usual with sports betting - the betting options become fewer the more unpopular a game is.

When it comes to betting, Betway has something for every user. All important events and betting options (and even more) per sport are available. Unless someone is looking for a particular fringe sport. This could then possibly only be found in top bookies in this category.

Betway Sport

An overview of the sports can be found in the menu

Betway Kenya betting program - top sports:

Betway Fußballwetten

As is often the case, the betting offer is dominated by football. Football fans are offered a particularly large number of football bets from the European top leagues from Spain, England, Italy, France and of course Kenya and games of the women's Bundesliga to choose from. Apart from the games of the biggest European soccer nations, Betway covers soccer betting and soccer leagues around the globe with betting markets.

In Kenya stehen neben der 1. Bundesliga und der 2. Bundesliga auch noch die 3. Liga und Partien der Frauen-Bundesliga zur Auswahl. Abgesehen von Spielen der größten europäischen Fußballnationen, deckt Betway Fußball Wetten und Fußball Ligen rund um den Globus mit Wettmärkten ab.

This also opens up the opportunity to bet on football matches from El Salvador, Oman or Uganda. In addition to the two best leagues, Betway also offers other competitions in most European and American countries. The front runner is England with 12 competitions.

Betway other sports bets

After football, tennis follows as the sport with the second largest betting offer. Here the offer is also never-ending. In addition to ATP, WTA, tournaments of the Challenger, ITF and UTR series are online.

But there is a generous number of betting options available for all top sports such as basketball, ice hockey, volleyball and handball. || | 749

Weiterhin fördern auch weniger gefragte Sportarten wie Gälischer Sport, Badminton, Cricket, Radsport und Darts die Vielfalt im Wettportfolio. Für Abwechslung ist also gesorgt und für viele Spieler werden keine Wünsche beim Wettangebot offen bleiben.

However, due to the State Treaty on Gambling, what no longer exists in Kenya are political betting, entertainment betting or eSports.

Betway eSports betting

Due to the licensing process in Kenya, Betway has discontinued the eSports area for Kenya. But of course all bookies with a Kenya license did it that way.

The bets on CS: GO, Dota 2, League of Legends, Call of Duty, Overwatch, Starcraft 2 or Rocket League matches in various leagues and tournaments remain thus only withheld from customers outside Kenya.

Betway Cash Out

Last but not least, the Cash Out Feature supplements the betting program a valuable option for maneuvering when betting. Secure bet winnings or minimize loss as soon as the game is finished.

The live bets are made available to Betway customers in a clear and easy-to-use live center. The betting provider can definitely convince with the type and structure of its live betting sector. Both professional tipsters and beginners will enjoy it.

Football is once again the focus of the live events. But that doesn't mean that football is the only possible sport for live betting. On average, live bets are available for around 10 to 12 sports every day. The most common live bets at Betway are:

The top sports in live bets

  • Football
  • Tennis
  • Ice hockey
  • Basketball
  • American Football
  • Volleyball
  • Handball
  • Baseball

These sports are often included an appealing selection of live bets. For fans of real-time bets, it is particularly positive that the live betting offer has real-time bets ready around the clock. So you can place a live bet every day at any time.

The range of bets offered is decent and Betway does not have to hide in terms of the types of bets offered. After all, even Live bets for soccer games less popular leagues still have around 20 betting markets.

The offer is more than satisfactory for these leagues. And that's not the end of the story. The more attention a match is given, the more betting options are given.

The bookmaker sets itself apart from the average, but it lacks a bit on the usual suspects Bet365, bwin and Unibet.

Betway Live Wetten Quoten

With live bets you have to accept lower betting odds. However, it is common practice among betting providers to generally rate live bets lower. So Betway just fits in here. On average, the odds for live bets are around 2 percentage points below those for pre-match bets.

Live betting features

A useful addition is a live event calendar. With this you can not only see the current live bets, but also take a look at the upcoming live bets.

Betway does not have a conventional calendar icon. The user can find out what's going on and what's coming up via the “Live” and “Coming soon” options. However, this preview only lasts up to and including the next day.

Betway betting odds

Wettquoten In the betting odds section, the so-called odds key and the odds are great compared to the competition Importance.

The online bookmaker does very well with its average payout rate of 95 percent in the major football leagues. These are the Bundesliga, Premier League, Serie A, Champions League and La Liga. But it can be even better: Bet3000, Bet365 and Unibet achieve around 97 to 98%.

Those leagues that are overshadowed by the big ones, such as the Belgian Jupiler League, Portuguese Primeira Liga or Turkish SüperLig, have values ​​between 92 and 94%. This means that Betway is average compared to the competition.

When it comes to favorite odds, Betway is very often in the upper range compared to the competition. If you look primarily at the level of the favorite odds, you are in good hands with this bookmaker.

Betway other sports odds

The 95% quota key as in the top soccer leagues can be found also in tennis (ATP + WTA). The bookmaker is doing very well with that. Betway achieved the absolute top values ​​in the NFL and NBA with 95 - 96%.

We were disappointed by 91% in the NHL. Surprisingly, this is surpassed by the DEL with 93%.

Otherwise, Betway stands out from some of its competitors when it comes to long-term bets. If you want to bet on an outsider in a long-term bet, you are often better advised here than with a bookmaker from continental Europe.

Betway odds key overview

Football Bundesliga 95%

Betway sports betting bonus

Wettanbieter Bonus The new customer bonus is not just about the bonus amount on. The bonus conditions are a very important factor. We took a closer look at the Betway bonus.

New customers can expect a bonus of a maximum of 100 euros. This is common bonus level in the betting industry. When awarding the bonus, Betway goes its own way and grants this to the first and second deposit as well as up to 50 euros each.

In order to receive the bonus, deposits with Klarna, PayPal, Giropay, Muchbetter, Trustly are eligible or by debit card / credit card. Other payment methods are excluded in the bonus terms. The first deposit must be 10 euros or more and must be made within 30 days of registration.

Betway Bonus

Betway welcome bonus | New customers only | Terms and conditions apply | 18+

Betway bonus conditions

Before a payout, the bonus amount of each of the two deposits must be converted at least 6 times on sports betting with a minimum odds of 1.75. Alternatively, system bets, the components of which have minimum odds of 1.40, are also permitted for implementation.

Furthermore, so-called each-way bets, in which the place bet has a minimum odds of 1.40, are allowed to clear the Betway voucher.

Even bets with a lower odds (1st , 30 to 1.74) contribute to the wagering requirements. However, these bets only count towards 12.5 percent for the bonus implementation. Conversely, this means that you would have to earn 48 times the turnover at these odds.

You have 30 days from the deposit to wager the Betway bonus. During this time you have to fully meet the bonus conditions, otherwise the bonus and the winnings earned from it are irrevocably forfeited We think the bonus amount has to be implemented is good. With many bookies, the deposit + bonus amount must be converted.

Was wir zum Bonus an sich sagen können: Die Mindestquote ist mit 1,75 moderat gewählt und auch dass nur der Bonusbetrag umgesetzt werden muss, finden wir gut. Bei vielen Bookies müssen Einzahlung + Bonusbetrag umgesetzt werden.

For a maximum bonus of 50 euros, however, we find 6 conversions a bit too many. If you go for the total bonus of 100 euros, 12 implementations would be necessary. Even if the minimum quota is in the green, this number is too high in our opinion.

Tipsters who dare to start out in the betting industry could be overwhelmed with so many conversions. Theoretically, however, you could also try your hand at just a 50 Euro bonus.

Age: 39 Nationality: Kenya Lieblings-Wettanbieter: Bet365

Boris has been with the betting base since 2015 and is our expert for the US sports division (NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB). Since part of his family has been living in North America for years, he has a special relationship with US sports and plays with these sports all night.

As a trained copywriter at the Texterschmiede in Hamburg, he also learned to write from scratch and tries to make his texts informative and easy to read.

Boris's favorite betting provider is Bet365, on the one hand because of the good odds, but as a night owl, of course, because of the excellent live betting options. He particularly recommends live betting for the NFL and NBA because, unlike in football, favorites often prevail even after falling behind. Read more
